This tutorial expands on templated funnels to show how you can create your
own funnel and path reports. These reports are powerful tools for analyzing the
behaviors of your users. Funnel and path are available for
Custom EventsEvents that indicate that a user performed a predefined action, such as adding an item to a shopping cart, viewing a screen, or clicking an Unsubscribe button. Custom events can trigger automation, sequences, scenes, and surveys. You can code them into your app or website, or send them to Airship from an external source using the custom event API. Custom events contain
properties that you can use to personalize messages.
Since most users are unable to complete a goal in a single session, our example funnel and path report shows goals achieved over a time range.
